This book is a torn page from the History of World War II.

It cost the author 20 years of research.

It cost the Greek National Resistance thousands of dead and wounded in battles and acts of sabotage that have remained unsung.

The inspiration and the leader of the unorthodox and harsh war without prisoners against the invaders was Aris; a charismatic 36-year-old man with an iron will. He created ELAS, the largest volunteer army in the history of Greece, and a “Free Greece” within enslaved Europe. But when the invaders left, Aris clashed with the political leadership of both the right and the left and he took to the mountains again, where he committed suicide on June 15, 1945, hounded by all of them.

Dionysis Charitopoulos was born in 1947 and is one of the most celebrated contemporary writers of Modern Greece. He belongs to the privileged elite who write works of quality literature that quickly become bestsellers and remain classics.
